    When I click the link, it only shows a 1-user license for TS. Still not a bad price...

    I got the following message in an email from the BitDefender news bulletin:

    "LIMITED OFFER FOR THIS WEEKEND!
    (VALID FROM FRIDAY 27.05.2011 HOUR: 12.00- SUNDAY 29.05.2011 HOUR: 24.00)"

    It seems to have the wrong month and wrong weekend so it might be a hoax. The offer might be subject to Romanian time too :blink:

    I´m confused, first screen shows 1 user, and when you click buy it shows 3 users...

    Anyone bought it?! Is it really 3 user licenses?!

    Cheers!

    it's not too bad. it's sort of quirky/flaky, has lots of odd instances of CPU spikes and memory usage spikes. on a reasonably-equipped machine that doesn't do anything but office tasks and internet browsing, so long as the phishing toolbar is disabled, it's plenty fast.

    on my plenty-capable configuration (4.2GHz quad core, 16GB RAM, win7 x64), it caused inexplicable hitching and stuttering in many modern game titles, even when the product was disabled. i trialled it for ~10 days before giving up.

    decided to try BDIS2011 on my laptop (not nearly as fast as my desktop, midrange system, 2.2GHz core 2 duo, 4GB ram, 7200rpm disk) and it's been fine all day today. i think they finally addressed the phishing protection issue with fatfox 4.0, as it's functioning normally. it does feel a little bit heavier than VIPRE, which is what this machine has had on it for 3 years, but it's not unusable.

    I tried it out as well a few days ago on my laptop, and it ran pretty well. The only problem I had was, the antiphising toolbar wouldn't work with Sandboxie. Oh well, whatever I run, it has to work with Sandboxie... ;)

    did the antiphishing protection itself work within sandboxie or just the toolbar? if it's just the toolbar, that's only a visual component of the phishing protection. i leave it turned off anyway :)

    Good question. I honestly don't know. I assumed if the toolbar was grayed-out that the phishing protection wasn't working.
